I am a Public Relations major, with a minor in Journalism at Columbia College Chicago. I am very involved in Columbia’s PRSSA chapter as well as the current Marketing Communication Senator for Columbia’s Student Government Association. I currently am an intern for NBC 5 Chicago in their Station Relations department. I also participated in the Disney College Program my fall 2010 semester of school. I am a huge advocate of internships, paid or not. I feel that internships are truly a huge part that will lead and teach you your career responsibilities and give you the most genuine and real experiences. I consistently strive to be involved and up to date on recent activities, news and progress for my school and within Chicago. The biggest advantage to being a student is to learn from other student’s experiences and advice with internships.
